My Holiday Fashion Wishlist - Dreaming The Days Away

This year it seems my holidays have been booked with many adventures to explore the world. So less time relaxing by the pool side, and more adventuring about seeing what each place has to offer. I have already visited Dublin and Italy and I will be on my way to Finland in August for a music festival (watch out for lots of up and coming posts.)

Simply be this month have such amazing bits coming in. Palm prints, maxi lengths and supportive and flattering swimwear. I’ve compiled a list of my must haves, some that I’ve already dug deep and purchased :p. And also I'll show you how to style the piece.

My first look is Pool side glam. Lazing the day away by crisp cool water, with the hot sun shining down, you've gotta keep the glam factor. I chose a swimsuit for this look as I thought this net mesh detailing was unique and fun.

This zig zag printed bandeau dress is an amazing throw over to take you from the room, to the pool and even to the bar for a cheeky afternoon cocktail ;). The net mesh detailing will look cool layered underneath.

You can't go to the pool without your beach bag, and you'll be certainly seeing watermelons (if not also drinking - had to get a Beyonce reference in there) with this fun straw tote bag. Keep your possessions safe and hidden in this.

I love these sandals from Clarks. A slight platform and the strap detailing is modern and will pair well with this look.

My second look is my tropical themed delight. This pineapple dress is incredible, and for holiday and Summer it is the perfect dress. I wear mine with leggings to brighten up a grey British summers day :p.
I'd team this look with a pair of reflective sunglasses. The blue/purple tint in these glasses is so so fun. I think tan or white accessories would go best with the print, so having the best of both worlds, I chose some tan lace up sandals and a white duffle bag.

This would be a night look for me. After a day by the pool this will be great to throw on, along with my sun kissed tanned skin I'd add loads of highlighter to my face and decolletage.

Don't forget to loose the chub rub (yes ladies nearly all of us experience this) throw on these amazing chub rub shorts. They are light, not restricting and comfortable. (Watch out for an in depth review on these.)
